Oh I am not pushing one way or the other. I am impressed that you are bothering to consider it at all.

My scratch Titans have been posable as a matter of course. While I originally intended to make this Titan a fixed stance; as I build I find it may be feasible to make it articulated after all and in life you only go around once so why not grab a bit of gusto. ;-)

The Bottom of the foot pads:

The Movie Helsreach shows the bottom of the foot pads as a rather bland tread pattern.

So be it. I like it for it's simplicity.

I've been requested to provide Scale for the Emperor Titan. Unfortunately the legs are not attached to the pelvis, in point of fact the upper leg segment has yet to be designed. But one lower leg is avail so for reference we can compare it to a standard Space Marine Trooper and to a Warlord Titan that I just happen to have.....

Legs Akimbo:

It's time to put my theories to the test. Yesterday began designing what I hope will be a movable leg system that will use friction locks to maintain the pose.

The PVC pipe couplings have "O" ring compression gaskets that will lock the upper thigh in place yet allow me to change the position in seconds.

https://i.imgur.com/xZLeTkM.jpg

The Lower Thigh to knee joint will be trickier and require a screw driver compression joint the same as on my Warlord.

https://i.imgur.com/3yoV86m.jpg
IPB Image

The biggest problem and one I just solved today in a fit of serendipity is how to make the legs sprawl out into the classic Titan pose.

https://i.imgur.com/iQn5Ci2.jpg
IPB Image

That will require a homemade gimbal assembly that I may have worked out in theory. It remains to be seen if the material is up to it.

Looking at these images I can just see my loyal readers cringing...........

I'm putting a lot of hope on flimsy styrene components. biggrin.gif

It's a far cry from this.....

and even further to this.

It is my hope to have fully articulated legs on this beastie although I will not go to the effort I went to with my Warlord giving the legs a "Toe in" and "Toe Out" capability. That was much too much and although workable I have never employed that feature when posing my Warlord.

https://i.imgur.com/TxcnBfk.jpg
IPB Image

Finally I can get a glimpse of what I have been working toward for these past few weeks; with the hip connect scaled to size, and the upper leg finally attached at the knee. I can now make some inroads towards an actual knee structure. I am now thinking of cutting the knee joint into the upper tier of the greave. which I believe will look much better.

Onward and Upward as they say...............

Ha! Well I wanted to set up the model to see if the sizes were in scale but the upper torso was too heavy to suspend over the lower torso and legs. I instead Photo shopped a quick composite to present here. First the image of the torso and the legs and then the green screen composite. The legs right now are like a house of cards so mounting the body on them is not possible.

As I said, the model thus far stands just over a meter tall (39.36 inches); a lot bigger than I had originally planned.

Reinforce and Detail Legs:

Today I began to strengthen the legs with the Armour and detailed the corner spires...

and ran out of plastic. Ha!

Stallmate

My local hobby supplier has let me down and I cannot get the large amount of strip styrene of a particular size I require. Normally I cut my own but even that did not produce enough.

https://i.imgur.com/bjzZa47.jpg
IPB Image

But every setback has a silver lining as it forced me to work on detail I was putting off 'til later. Which ultimately was most gratifying.

It also relieved me of the tedious aspect of making eight of these constructs plus I am catching up on current Dinosaur theory.

Looking More Like A Wedding Cake

Everyday

A pains taking week and a lot of work but does it really reflect it; not so much.

The spires, Minarets, whatever mimic the 3D work by measurement but the spire points seem a bit squat.....

https://i.imgur.com/z4mddtV.jpg
IPB Image

But in this image they look okay. Go figure.

Anyway I'll try sanding them down some more. After all I have almost a millimeter to play with.

You're amazing.

Can't even imagine spending the amount of time and effort you've already committed to this to any project of my own.

You have the focus and dedication of a monk, sir.

Sorry to have been so long in responding:

The tedium of making dozens of these structures; revising, chopping and rebuilding better representatives of them seemed like not the most interesting aspect of this build.

https://i.imgur.com/OYc5SIe.jpg
IPB Image

I finally have enough, eighteen, for the first tier of the greaves and, with slight modifications, I have devised of a better way to produce the second tier, eight in all, that is less labor intensive.

Couple that with an abscessed tooth, a root canal, and a mild case of the flu made me less than amenable to communicating my meager progress with my peers.

The castle portion of this construct will necessitate a lot of repetitive work and no I am not going to "cast" or 3D print any portion of the requisite components. In my warped OCD way I consider that cheating

Of course I am hypocritically not above using bitz. wink.gif

Blackadder is Back In the Groove

To be a bit self serving I'm feeling much better and the past few day have been most productive. The gabled naves in the first level greaves give the appearance of homogeneity even though they aren't exactly the same.

The first attempt at a stain glass insert for the naves for lack of a better name.

A side by side comparison I stumbled across on my imgur preview index. Even though my Emperor will be taller the proportions are pretty close. Whew!

https://i.imgur.com/wdDpheK.jpg

Note to self, "I have to shorten the second and third tier. And hip region needs to be beefier."

Looking really good. Quite a bit of progress has been achieved. How is the tooth?

Could you thicken the hip areas simply with detailing? Coiled wires, insignias etc. etc. rather than any actual structural work?
